These are great multipurpose shorts. I love all of the zippered pockets which are roomy enough to hold my wallet, cell phone, keys etc while walking and hiking. They are comfortable and attractive looking so I can wear them anywhere. They are light and pack well for travelling and wash up nicely. They are a bit on the expensive side but appear durable and will be a product that will get a lot of use. I am 5'3 and 115 lbs and purchased the size 2. They fall to my knee but can also be rolled shorter. They fit well when newly washed but have some stretch so size down if you are in-between sizes.
